Wednesday Daytime Unit

PC076-612/712/812 + PC206-912(Specialised Studies)
Note: this unit is being offered in place of PC008 Spiritual Formation for Professional Ministries

Powerful cultural forces seek to form our desires and choices. A pivotal biblical text insists, “Do not be conformed … be transformed”  How are we formed? Counter-formed? Transformed … for faithful living, godly ministry, wise leadership? 

This unit delves into formational practices for disciples of Christ who long to make a difference in churches, workplaces, and families. We will explore human identity, self-care, conflict, power dynamics, stress, burnout, spiritual warfare, addictive patterns, complex relationships, and so much more.
